Have you ever wondered about the difference in nutritional value with freshly grown food? Sabrina Henry, a passionate organic food grower with a background in Nutrition, began to notice a variation with freshly grown food 12 years ago whilst weaning her daughter on veggies grown locally to where she lived. It was this noticing that sparked the developement of her skills through a combination of theory and practice that has been positively influenced by permaculture principles and the work of Sir Albert Howard.
In this informative and interactive session, you will learn more about how to grow food with good nutrition in mind. We will start by exploring the fundamental elements behind nutriton and food growing to then build up an understanding of nutrient cycles to learn exactly why they are important for soil health, human health and climate health.
Trainer: Sabrina Henry
Sabrina Henry studied Nutritional Therapy at Westminster University, exploring Nutrition at a deeper level and gaining a solid foundation in biochemistry and phytochemistry,before leaving to pursue an independent research project - titled ‘What does Organic really mean?’. During this time, she spent a year volunteering at a Permaculture Learning and Development Centre (LAND Centre) growing fruit and vegetables with a focus on Nutrition. In 2015, Sabrina then went on to exhibit a visionary project on soil at Global Soil Week in Berlin. One year later, she completed an Organic Food growing course at Organiclea and then went on to fully integrate food growing as part of her ‘Creative Nutrition’ workshops. Fast forward three years and her interdisciplinary approach became an art practice put to test during an MA at Central St Martins and now being delivered within an educational setting. Sabrina tutors a group of college students on a weekly basis, on their allotment site in Hertfordshire. Her style is primarily holistic and artistic, with an emphasis on growing nutritious and reliable crops according to local climate.
